ENG 101 - College Writing

The Writing@UMA project is a series of short videos featuring UMA faculty on how they approach writing, research, and, of course, deadlines and procrastination. The purpose of this project is twofold: first, to show students that they are part of a community of writers at UMA and, second, to offer honest insights about the challenges of writing—and personal strategies for meeting those challenges—from faculty across the disciplines. Faculty address questions students frequently have about college writing and writing in general, like, “Why are deadlines so important?” “Do you need to be inspired to start writing?” “How do you become a ‘good’ writer, anyway?” If you are a student with a good writing question that you would like to see addressed in a Writing@UMA video, or if you are faculty who would be interested in making a video, please contact First-Year Writing Coordinator Noel Tague at noel.tague at maine.edu.
